A diamond grading certificate is a report given by an independent and professional gemological laboratory. The diamond is evaluated for its quality, not its value. Every diamond is unique, to
search diamonds that are identical is impossible. The certificate will map out all the diamond’s recognizable and individual characteristics. Each certificate will include the diamond’s color, clarity, carat weight and cut information (see the 4 C’s). The grading report also includes a hand-drawn map of the diamond’s inclusions. Since no two diamonds are exactly alike you can always check that the certificate matches the diamond.
When it comes to certification and appraisal, you need absolute accuracy, precision and reliability. That is why our stones are appraised by two of the most respected laboratories in the Trade.

Round Diamond History & Origins
Technological advances have improved the process of cutting diamonds and today we can enjoy the 58 facet round diamond cut. Its circular shape showcases 58 different eye catching facets of the diamond. It maximizes and catches the light from all angles which is why it is popularly referred to as round brilliant diamond. The round cut is the most popular shape of all the well known cuts in gemstones. It is easily identified and lends itself to every occasion night or day and every wearer, young or old, contemporary or traditional.
The search for the cut to showcase the facets of the diamond gemstone’s radiance and brilliance has led the way to many new cuts throughout the years. For many years the technology or the machinery simply did not exist for the round cut diamond. The invention of the bruting machine towards the end of the 1800s, made possible the round cut. Before the circular cut was invented diamonds sported a cushion cut popular in Europe. In 1919 the circular cut went through another transformation with Marcel Tolkowsky’s Diamond Design Thesis.
